Shaun Hill's days as a potential starter are done, so I'm guessing Sanchez, Kaepernick or Mettenberger are the best (probably) available options. Either that or give Brett a call...

The way Teddy plays maybe its a good landing spot for EJ Manuel or Geno Smith.surely the vikings are more about AP and that defence.

Teddy plays like Rodgers (not quite as good but thats the type he is) those guys arent of that mould.

But we saw last year that a running game and a defence can carry a team when there QB is an issue.Have not watched much pre-season but have the vikings looked like they where going to become a throw it 30+times a game.Last year they tried bringing in that deep threat reciever but dont think that fitted what Zimmer wants from his offence.

As crushing a blow as that missed field goal, this franchise is cursed. A horrible way to go into the new stadium now.

We can't really afford to tank, we need to keep the momentum going as best we can and hope Teddy comes back in full stride for 2017 so we can still be where we want to be in our progression. I'd like to see us go for Mettenberger if we can get him, the list of FAs are understandably pretty dire but we shouldn't be giving up too much for someone. Must be an affordable option out there better than Hill though.

you said the way Teddy plays.

Geno/EJ have so far failed to show much, even at this end of the market better guys are out there.

Sanchez/Colin for example and Mettenberger
pretty much anyone

Honestly, based on what I have seen on the field the only 2 options that would be worth it are Kaepernick(off the field issue there) and AJ Mccaron, based on the rest of the team would be glad to give anything up to a second rounder for him.
